1/2 oz Black Tea Maple Syrup (2 part Maple:1 part Tea) (Oolong Tea)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a floated orange wheel and drizzle a dash of Cherry Heering on top of it.
Last Saturday night, I turned to the September/October 2010 issue of Imbibe to make Chantal Tseng's Mortal Sunset. Andrea and I met Chantal at Tales of the Cocktail back in 2009; while we have not made it down to Washington, D.C., to visit the Tabard Inn, we can at least sample one of her recipes in the mean time. And how could we not be drawn to this recipe for it includes two of our favorite ingredients, namely tea and the bitter liqueur Cynar?
(*) Postnote: the orange wheel was most likely candied such as by this recipe.
